I want to be in the U.S. next year for Halloween. I want my kids to experience it RIGHT. We had the AWC Halloween party today and while it was really nice, if a bit chaotic, it was just a masquerade with decorations. A couple of years ago we got to participate in the closest thing to a real Halloween since we moved to Sweden, courtesy of a friend who put her heart and soul into making sure her children got to experience as close to the real thing as possible, and it was wonderful, but I really, REALLY want to take my children home next October. I know some people don't like Halloween, but I LOVED it, I loved everything about it, that magical mysterious night, and I really miss it. A big thanks to reebert for her clever costume idea. I don't know why the blue hairspray we used turned neon in the flash, but it looks even cooler like that! We were 2 pairs of bluejeans! :D (Karin being, of course, the BAD GENE).

I did that Hallomeme thing with all my LJ friends listed and it was mildly amusing, but way too long to post here. However, the one that cracked me up the most was the one for my brother: johann_metzger dressed as a Care Bear. HAHAHA! And several of you didn't bother to show up and thus got no candy. What's up with that?!

Last weekend, home alone with me at one point, Martin came and told me he was b-o-o-o-o-red. I said, "How can you be bored?! You have a million toys and games and things to play with!" He rolled his eyes and said, "But I don't know what to do." So I told him to go make me something. "What should I make?" he asked. "Make a...a...make a rabbit!" I demanded. So he did.

A 3D-tail, no less!

This one just makes me smile :)

A woman I don't know, who is a regular on a talk forum for Americans moving to and living in Sweden that I used to frequent, and who is on the LJ friends lists of some of MY LJ friends, lost her teenage son today in a tragic accident. I don't know the details but I can't imagine what she and her family are going through right now. :( I've been hugging my children extra hard all day today, but it's not enough.
